ajority Leader of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa has welcomed his 28th child.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports Ado-Doguwa, who represents the people of Doguwa/Tudun Wada Federal Constituency of Kano State, made this known on Tuesday.
He revealed that the child was born in the last 24 hours as he responded to a congratulatory message from House Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu.
Recall that 56-years-old Ado-Doguwa, member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), had in January 2020 flaunted his four wives during his swearing-in ceremony at the National Assembly.
“This is no longer news. It is no longer news because this thing happened in the last 24 hours. It is true that my beloved family has gotten an additional one person. It is a baby girl. Bouncing.
“The mother and the baby are hale hearty. The husband is still active. I am here. And I thank God that I kept my word with the House that while I had 27 I promised you that I would continue counting.
“I want by the grace of God and your prayers that the count would continue,” Ado-Doguwa said.
The Kano lawmaker also joked about creating legislation to enable families with 30 children to get an electoral polling unit.
Ado-Doguwa said: “Now that we are considering the Electoral Act amendment, when we get to the floor perhaps in the Committee of the Whole, I would appeal to my members so that we suspend relevant rules and we have a clause in the Electoral Act where it permits families that do have up to 30 kids in their comes to have an electoral polling unit in that family”.
When the Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajbiamila asked if he was working towards having a polling unit in his house with two to go, Ado-Doguwa said: “At least between now and 2023 before the elections comes, if you allow that, then I would have a polling unit within my home”.
